When the nights are cold and you need a quick, comforting meal you know your family will enjoy, then nothing works quite like a hearty soup. It’s the go-to meal in my family’s house because I know everyone will love it. In fact, some of these soups are so hearty, they might be better classified as stews or chilis! But I digress, however you want to classify them, they’ll get the job done without too much hassle and you know everyone will leave the table happy and full. Take a look and give one (or all) a try this week!
1. Midnight Soup
This traditional German New Year’s dish is the perfect winter warmer. It’s also very flexible as it goes well with Polish sausage, ground beef, bacon, or ham. Whatever works for your budget and tastes will work in this dish. It comes together rather quickly and can be made ahead of time. You can make this fantastic soup here.
2. Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup
Nothing soothes and comforts like a bowl of chicken soup, except maybe this amped up version. By adding cheesy tortellini and a creamy broth, you get a silky, hearty dish that will have you forgetting all about the cold outside.

This is one of those dishes that lends itself to being tinkered with. Whatever you have on hand will work here or if you have something you really want to try then go for it.

5. ‘Cold Fighter’ Chicken Couscous Soup
Whether you’re sick, or just sick and tired of the cold, this soup will have you feeling better in no time. It has a heartier feel than normal chicken soup with couscous instead of egg noodles.
